IP ratings refer to the level of protection offered by a casing, against dust and water. The letters 'IP' are followed by two values The first value represents protection against solids such as dust, followed by the one that refers to resistance against liquids (water).
Scoring IPX4, the Powerbeats Pro's rating for solids indicates that no data available to specify a protection rating, and the second number of 4 means that they can withstand low pressure spray similar to that of a shower head when tilted at 180° for 10 minutes.
Compared to the Powerbeats Pro, Beats Fit Pro have a rating of IPX4 meaning that we are not yet certain of their rating with solids (dust) and that of liquids is that, they both have the same rating against liquids

Both Beats Fit Pro and Powerbeats Pro have stereo speakers
ANC makes use of more advanced kind of tech to actively cancel noise. How it works, it listens to the sound pattern outside and inside the earbud and then inverts the soundwaves to cancel it out. Simply put, it's like having +1 (sound from your surrounding) then producing -1 (inverted noise) to make zero thus "diluting" the noise.
The Beats Fit Pro have Active Noise Cancellation enabling you to listen at lower levels of volume, causing less ear fatigue as you don't have to crank up the earbuds volume to outcompete background noise.
The Powerbeats Pro stay well in place, creating an acoustic seal that reduces your environment sounds and also prevents the earbuds voice audio from leaking out at the same.
Both of these devices have passive noise reduction this means that they limit ambient noise without using technology to cancel it out.
The Powerbeats Pro driver unit is 12mm in diameter, bigger drivers are more powerful, and can produce better bass.
The driver unit is basically a mini speaker that makes sound in the device, its size corellates with the sound produced by the earbuds.
Beats Fit Pro driver unit is 9.5mm in diameter, which implies that they have a smaller driver unit than that of Powerbeats Pro by 2.5mm , many people have a misconception that driver units of a bigger size automatically produce better sound quality.
However, large drivers find it difficult to produce high frequencies so yeah, larger drivers are capable of generating louder sound, but this does not imply that they produce better quality sound.
The Powerbeats Pro's lowest frequency is at 10Hz, low-frequency response inidcates how well an audio device generates low recognizable frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal while at it.
Beats Fit Pro's lowest frequency is at 20Hz, this means that Powerbeats Pro produce a juicier bass than the Beats Fit Pro
Beats Fit Pro's highest frequency is at 20000Hz, high-frequency response indicates how well an audio device generates high human frequencies and if it makes any changes to the signal on its way through.
The sound pressure level, is the level of pressure of sound, measured in decibels, dB, Beats Fit Pro's measurement is 101.3dB/mW. Devices with a higher sound pressure level are generally louder when supplied with any given audio source.
The Beats Fit Pro have neodymium magnets, when used in earbuds produce a higher sensitivity and substantial sound output using less power to do so. They can help produce music at quite a high sound pressure level, using high magnetic flux.
The Powerbeats Pro's battery life is 9 hours, these last longer than 5 hours of listening which is considered average before recharge. A device's battery life is usually given by the manufacturer, and with longer battery life, you get to use it for longer and have to charge the device less often.
